CUB was established in 2004 through the integration of three distinct educational institutions, each of which represented a prestigious tradition in higher education. Today the University is an internationally recognised institution in the areas of both education and research. Operating with six faculties CUB provides undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate and PhD study programmes in the areas of economics, business, horticultural science, food science, landscape architecture and social sciences. We have to prepare ourselves for European quality in order to prove the international competitiveness of our degrees and to become attractive also for foreign students from our region and from farther countries as well. We strive to further expand our traditionally excellent cooperation with the business sector through joint research and development projects and by involving external experts and executives in education even more intensively and on a larger scale.
